once upon a time (actually only a few years ago) I worked in the wine industry. For 15 years. I absolutely loved it, and it turned me into a complete wine snob.
Well, at the time I got a lot of free or discounted wine, and was paid relatively well, so I could afford to be a wine snob.
Then I got a job outside the industry. I love it more than life itself, but it doesn’t pay well nor does it come with a wine allowance.
So I am humbly reduced to drinking wine out of a box. Yup, to the horror of my old winey friends, I drink chateau cardboard.
As with anything we consume, it creates rubbish. However, a 2L cask of wine is actually awesomely sized. The box makes super storage, and I have used tons of them for storing my craft supplies! (And no, I am not telling you how long it took to drink that many casks of wine.)
I have decorated these in various ways, but one of the simplest was with some cowhide contact.
Looks pretty good, no?
